1. Dwayne dweebly QB for DA bears..
He is playing cutler for a fool..
2. Dwayne dweebly for the skins QB..
It's almost, (for RG3), like getting dumped for a rich Arab..
3. Dwayne dweebly QB FOR THE packers..
Matt Flynn had a historic game vs the lions..
And then his 2nd game vs the lions made Malcolm X look like Bryan gumbel..
HOWEVER, vs Oakland he rebounded noicely, (get it like on the rebound), and threw for 258 yards..
4. Dwayne dweebly for arsenal..
He somehow dumped bad a-s--s theo Walcott off his starting spot in a very big game..
5. Dwayne dweebly that just got engaged to Alex Morgan..
Gorgeous girl that plays soccer for USA..
It gives all of us hope..
I really thought she would marry a rich Arab..
But I can't be right all the time:)

Well, my first question is what the hell is a Dwayne Dweebly? I googled "Dwayne Dweebly" and all that came up was a list of your throwdowns!
What are the qualifications for being a Dwayne Dweebly? Because you have Josh McCown, who is playing well, and Matt Flynn, who sucks more than... Ok, I will spare you and not finish the sentence.
What is a Dwayne Dweebly?
On your list, 2 makes no sense at all. I don't think you can explain your way out of that one; and 4 and 5 don't... Wait! You mention Arabians again! What is your deal?!
What is a Dwayne Dweebly?
Ok, I'll stop picking on your argument...
Now I will go back to it. You make a list regarding the greatest Dwayne Dweebly's in all of sports, and the best you can come up with is a couple backup QBs in the NFL today, a soccer player, and someone who married a soccer player? That's pretty poor...
What is a Dwayne Dweebly?
My list will be as follows:
1. Dwayne Dweebly
2. A Dead Cat
3. A Furby
4. Mumford and Son
5. The guy from Reading Rainbow

Ok.. Guess I better explain what a Dwayne dweebly is..
I first got the idea back in 1992, when I was watching the British comedy TV series Red dwarf..
In this one particular episode, Cat gets sent to a different dimension..
In this dimension, he goes from being cooler than Fonzi, to the biggest nerd/loser on the planet..
And he finds out that his name has been changed from Cat to Dwayne DWeebly, and he is obviously very upset about that..
So, when I use the word Dwayne Dweebly in sports..
I use it to describe what I believe are loser/journeymen..
And obviously in this TD, I'm trying to pick the journeymen who are making the biggest impacts, causing big ripples and making all the headlines..
4 of my examples I have 100% confidence that they will be journeymen for life..
The bears back up, McCowan is the only one I'm not sure of..
Up to this point, yes, McCowan has been a journeyman..
And since his team mates have such little confidence in him, I'm inclined to believe the cowboys game was a fluke..

So Dwayne Dweebly = Duane Dibbley?
No, you butchered his name completely, you fool!
You want to name some of the best journeymen in all of sports and the only ones you can come up with are Matt Flynn and Josh McCown? Matt Flynn just sucks, he played against awful pass defenses when he torched the Lions and Patriots.
You second one makes no sense... RGIII has always been a Redskin, so has his backup Kirk Cousins. Rex Grossman has been on a total of 3 teams: Bears (6 years), Texans (1 year), and Redskins (4 years). Rex Grossman does not add up to be a journeyman to me, just a career backup.
Your 4th one, I have no idea who you are talking about...
The guy engaged to Alex Morgan is Servando Carrasco, who has played for a whopping 2 teams in his brief career... He is not a journeyman.
Now that I know what a Duane Dibbley is, here's a list:
1. Josh McCown
2. Andre Brown
3. Cliff Lee
4. Tyson Chandler
5. Chauncey Billups
I think I put a solid list together... but the one in my first argument was much better. Especially the furby...

I think you are being alittle harsh on lee and billups..
Billups was a key component for the fantastic Detroit pistons..
Lee was great for the rangers and phillies..
Cliff was also a post season warrior..
I'm alittle disappointed in Flynn..
I thought he had a real chance to have a great career..
Now go get yourself a baseball steak or something..

I'm not being harsh on anybody, you changed your rules on what a Duane Dibbley or Dwayne Dweebly is...
In the throwdown, you said this:
"And obviously in this TD, I'm trying to pick the journeymen who are making the biggest impacts, causing big ripples and making all the headlines.."
So I took Duane Dibbley as being a journeyman that made a positive impact on his/her respective team.
However, in the comments, you said this:
"Journeymen have a couple highs but mostly lows.. They show a flash of brilliance here and there.. But ultimately there career will be remembered as voids of obscurity.."
That is completely different than what you said before. Did you not just change your rule to make my list look bad?
You see, your list just flat out sucks and you didn't even name 4 of the 5 players on your list. You just left us to assume we knew who you were talking about. When you assume something... yeah, you know the rest.
At any rate, only 5 people outside of Green Bay thought Matt Flynn had a snowball's chance in hell of having a great career.
